Nashville-based indie artist Maddie Medley has shared the official video for “Coming of Age,” the title track from the artist’s debut EP, Coming of Age, Pt. 1. Directed by Blythe Thomas (Grace VanderWaal, Hozier, Quinn XCII), the video is streaming now on Medley’s official YouTube channel.
On the EP’s title track, Medley brings her purposeful introspection to a brilliantly slow-burning epic, each line electrified by her mesmerizing vocals. Produced by six-time Grammy Award-winner Dave Cobb, “Coming of Age” reflects on existential frustration, as well as the confusion that accompanies love while on the precipice of adulthood.
The Coming of Age, Pt. 1 EP was heralded this spring by first single “Buzz,” a rhapsodic meditation on love and self-discovery. The track was accompanied by a dreamy music video directed by Christopher Good (Waxahatchee, Mitski, Kevin Morby). Coming of Age, Pt. 1 is available now on all DSPs.
Praised by NPR for her “haunting vulnerability and stark openness,” Medley’s music documents the strange and sometimes-treacherous journey of becoming yourself. Building a powerful tension between her beguiling voice and penetrating songwriting—a dynamic equally informed by Patsy Cline and ’90s riot grrrl bands—the 22-year-old artist ultimately finds a quiet strength in boldly following her own intuition.
